With inmates back in CA jail, focus turns to how they escaped

I’m glad they caught them and no other violence was committed by these inmates. At least, none that we presently know of.


One of the inmates was accused of having committed torture/mutilation/murder.
They were likely dangerous individuals.

With inmates back in CA jail, focus turns to how they escaped
It was the first breakout from the facility in nearly 30 years.

SANTA ANA, Calif. (AP) — With all three violent inmates who escaped from a California jail back in custody, authorities are beginning to examine how they carried out the jailbreak and what they did during their week on the run.

Orange County Sheriff Sandra Hutchens vowed over the weekend to fix the security lapses that allowed the escape.

Early on Jan. 22, the men sawed, crawled and climbed their way out of the maximum-security Central Men’s Jail and used a rope made of bedsheets to rappel four stories to the ground.

Their escape triggered an intense manhunt.

On Friday, of the inmates, 43-year-old Bac Duong, surrendered after walking into an auto repair shop in Santa Ana just a few miles from the jail. The last two escapees, Hossein Nayeri, 37, and Jonathan Tieu, 20, were arrested Saturday after a civilian flagged down officers near San Francisco’s Golden Gate Park and pointed out a parked van that looked like one believed stolen by the inmates after the escape.

It could have been much worse! I’m hearing one of the three escapees wanted to kill a cab driver, which led to a disagreement between them and the oldest guy turning himself in. It almost seems impossible that they could have gotten away for long, with all of the electronic interconnectedness and surveillance we have everywhere now.

ESL teacher may have played a ‘significant role’ in helping 3 O.C. inmates escape

Hossein Nayeri graduated from high school near Fresno and served in the U.S. Marine Corps.
Despite this American upbringing, though, the inmate managed to enroll in an English-as-a-second-language class at Men’s Central Jail in Orange County.
There, he befriended his teacher, Nooshafarin Ravaghi. She was 44 and the author of several children’s books. He was 37 and awaiting trial in a torture and kidnapping case. Both had family roots in Iran.

The two began a written correspondence that a Sheriff’s Department spokesman said was “far closer than appropriate.”
Now, Ravaghi is suspected of helping her student and two other inmates escape. She has admitted to giving Nayeri a Google Maps printout showing the roof of the jail, but has denied providing him with the cutting tools the trio used to break out of the high-security lockup, authorities said.

Same thing happened here in NY a few months ago. Three inmates escaped from a prison near the Canadian border with the help of a female employee or volunteer, I forget which.
The manhunt went on for weeks and covered from the Catskills to Canada.
